South Korea was widely highlighted in this second part of the year on Netflix with the card “Squid Game”. One of the actors will very soon be in the cast of “The Silent Sea”, a science fiction series that is revealed in a first trailer.
South Korea in the spotlight this year on Netflix
Cinema from South Korea has experienced considerable growth for a good twenty years. To the point of being quoted among the best in the world on a recurring basis. The freedom and inventiveness found inside are admirable, allowing the public to discover stimulating works. The phenomenon does not yet have its equivalent on the small screen in the series industry, but we are starting to see a few titles creating a stir. Inevitably, the first example that comes to mind is Squid Game, that nobody really expected upstream, and which triggered a real popular tidal wave. More recently, again, it is Hellbound that got noticed on Netflix. Before the end of 2021, a third original creation of the platform with the red logo could also stand out: The Silent Sea.
The Silent Sea : what terrible secret is hiding on the moon?
Coming soon on December 24, this sci-fi series has potential to attract people. The scenario takes place in the future. A team is mounted to take part in space travel to reach an abandoned station on the moon. The goal is to collect a sample and bring it back to Earth. Now, you can imagine, nothing will go as planned and the mission will completely derail by taking a worrying turn. In the base, the heroes fall on corpses then a strange presence is signaled. Is he a monster? A survivor who would have transferred? A first trailer has just been revealed and it does not advance us any further on the issue.
The promotion has the good idea to keep the suspense going to make people want to see more. We hope that a good surprise awaits us on arrival and that the project will stand out for its originality. Something that is not yet certain at the sight of these images, where we can feel some influences (Alien, necessarily) without a very assertive style being visible.
